It has been another quiet week reading-wise. According to GoodReads I am still a bit ahead on my reading goals for the year, but that doesn't help all the books I should be reading and haven't. Not to mention instead of required reading this weekend I read the first two books in a trilogy that was a bit of a light read. Where I stopped reading for like a week, I decided to ease myself back into the experience. That means I still haven't done a lot of my 'required reading'. We will just have to see what this week brings. There is so much I 'should' be reading it is kind of overwhelming me at the moment, so I will think about it when I finish the third book in the Jennifer Estep series I am working my way through.
The other thing I am thinking about today is April 14th and how it is the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic sinking. It is hard to believe. We are discussing doing something special on Historical Tapestry for the event, so I also need to figure that out. Then, this week marks the start of the Once Upon a Time Challenge. I am looking forward to it! I all ready rearranged my bookshelves to put all the fantasy-related books in one spot. It should be fun as always.
Also, just a reminder that the next day for the Poetry: Read More/Blog More is March 27th. It is sneaking up on us quickly! Lu will have the Mr. Linky this month. I look forward to people joining in!
I haven't been paying much attention to challenges the last couple weeks. I need to remedy that!
A bit of a cheat, but I blogged about them and figured they should count. You can read my thoughts here. (Personal Copy)
For those of you worried about this being your child's first experience with these books, I want to point out that other than using pictures of things from the books, they don't really tell the story at all. For example, this one starts with '1 Governess'. The other one starts with 'white rabbit'. And then there are corresponding pictures. Thoughts on this one also found here. (Personal Copy)
I actually found this at the second-hand bookstore. I was shocked! I never find graphic novels second-hand. I also have a few of the books in this series out from the library, so when I read the rest that I have I will post then. It is a really fun idea that works really well, though. (Personal Copy)
Jennifer Estep is an author that I have been reading off and on since the end of last year. I happened upon this book and its sequel at the second-hand bookstore the other day and decided to give them a read. They are not perfect. You can easily tell that they were her first books, but they have a lot of potential and I really enjoyed reading this one. The big pluses were the fact that it is a group of Superheroes, not something I read a lot, and that it focuses around a strong female character. It is a bit clichéd at times, but overall a fun read.

What Are You Listening to Wednesday - Week 15
I am really disorganized on this at the moment. I need to take a moment and figure out what I have and haven't posted about. I know I said I would do it last week, but then last week got busy. I will try and do it this week!
